Link between Gum Health and Atrial Fibrillation

by Dr. Thulasi Muppuru
Prime Dental Care

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia (abnormal heart
rhythm) causing an irregular heartbeat. According to U.S CDC, AF affected
approximately 2.7 million Americans in 2010. CDC noted that AF patients are at
significantly increased health risks.

According to several studies there is a relationship between periodontal (Gum)
health and AF. Thus, oral infections may contribute to AF by adding to the
body’s inflammatory burden. In one large study, Researchers examined 800,000
patients and discovered that patients in the periodontal disease group were 31
percent more likely to develop AF when compared to the control group. The
authors also noted that those patients who had at least one scheduled dental
appointment a year had a lower risk of atrial fibrillation when compared to
patients who did not seek any dental care.
